Test of Indo-Israel warship missile system successful

There is finally some hope for frontline Indian warships being commissioned without an adequate "area defence weapon" to guard against enemy aircraft, drones, missiles and helicopters.

The long-range surface-to-air missile (LR-SAM) system, being developed by DRDO and Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI) with an interception range of 70 km, was finally tested for the first time on Monday after a long delay.

The defence ministry said the LR-SAM's "hot test" against a flying target was "successfully" conducted in Israel in the presence of DRDO chief Avinash Chander, IAI president Joseph Weiss and top Israel Defence Force officials.

"All the systems, including the radar, communication launch systems and the missile system, performed as expected and hit the target directly. The system is being developed for both the Indian and Israeli armed forces," said an official.

This development by IAI will go a long way to ensure the safety of IN ships.

What was the contribution to it by the DRDO?

Radar, seeker,warhead and other front end components by IAI. DRDO will contribute the smokeless dual pulse motor and other backend components related to missile propulsion and manoeuvrability etc.

Brain from IAI and muscle from DRDO.

Hopefully All P-15A/B's and P-17A's will be equipped with this soon.

No.. I think u forgot. The P-15B and P-17A are slated to be fitted with the ER-SAM, the extended range version of the LR-SAM with an interception range of 100 km.

The terminal phase shown in the video has very less smoke.. Launch however needs booster, but flight is almost smokeless as we can see in the video..
